    Fantastic casual blazer. Love the knit tie and scarf. If I had to nitpick I would make the pocket square a bit more pronounced. Awesome shot!

    I have a pair of corduroys like those and a similar jacket. It’s not an eye-popping look but comfortable.

    Great jacket and great fit. I love his color choices. Really perfect.

    Does anyone else only button the middle button of their three-button jacket? Mine rumples, when I do, so I usually button the top two and unfasten the middle one, when I sit.

    Corduroy, tweed, striped shirt and a soft woollen scarf. Oh yes, a knit tie as well. All my favourites since 30 years still going strong.

    I get a little giddy when I see a well dressed man and a well dressed man in the USA…swoon. These muted colors aren’t supposed to work well on dark skin. It’s working beautifully here.

    Ricola, I HOPE that those are, indeed, velvet trousers. It is also my hope that one day I can find that kind of texture and/or depth in a relationship, let alone a day’s outfit. I love the interplay of the simple shapes: the rough checkers on the scarf, the gray static of the jacket, the blue stripe on the cuff.

    This guy looks great. Love the way the subtle blue in the scarf (you can see it more clearly in the fringe) matches the the shirt.

    The lighting in this photograph is exquisite. I think you could have photographed anything and it would look beautiful. This man looks splendid however. Your photograph just enhances the fact.

    Great reserved, comfortable, versatile look…timeless. I really enjoy the two-tone scarf and how it pulls the shirt into the mix of earthtones. Doesn’t look like he worked too hard to look good (his look lends some effortlessness to his attitude). He is a genius of sartorial excellence here.

    His jacket is too tight. The scarf is too bulky and it looks like it is stuffed into the jacket.

    A very dapper gent !

    The 3 point pocket square is just a touch too far in my opinion, but I’m nitpicking here really

    Very much like his style

    (and I want that jacket !)
